This study displays an Opening Range (OR) on a chart every N minutes. It can be configured to display only during trading hours, or all hours. The code has only been tested on 3-day 1-minute charts for 30 and 60 minute OR bars. The full usefulness of this study is unknown and is left to the user. There are many times during the day where an Opening Range can provide insight into market action, and perhaps this will help users discover these.
